In Luke 4:27 Jesus spoke of Naaman, a Syrian soldier mentioned in the Old Testament. The Bible said in 2 Kings 5:1 that Naaman was an honorable man. The word honorable means he was a man worthy of everyone’s respect. This was said immediately after we were informed that Naaman was a soldier. So serving God and his country as a soldier was the reason given in the Bible that made Naaman worthy of honor.
Today let us recognize the truth that serving your country as a faithful soldier can be honorable in God’s sight. A soldier may also serve the living God by doing his duty.
We are citizens of a noble country and our soldiers, both past and present, are worthy of honor. And let it also be clear that God is involved with our soldiers no matter where they serve, so today we ask for His mercy on us, and our soldiers and sailors. God bless America!
